All three of the Drumm brothers were at the funeral.

But only one of them was in the coffin.

William, Brian, and Luke: three boys, born a year apart, trained from birth by their wily mother to compete for her attention. They play games, as brothers do...yet even after the Drumms escape into the world beyond their windows, those games--those little cruelties--grow more sinister, more merciless, and more dangerous. And with their lives entwined like the strands of a noose, only two of the brothers will survive.

Crisply written and quickly paced, perfect for fans of breathtaking suspense, Little Cruelties gazes unflinchingly into the darkness: the darkness collecting in the corners of childhood homes, hiding beneath marriage beds, clasped in the palms of two brothers shaking hands. And it confirms Liz Nugent--whose work has invited comparisons to Patricia Highsmith and Barbara Vine and has been celebrated as captivating (People) and highly entertaining (The Washington Post)--as one of the most exciting, perceptive voices in contemporary fiction.
